Ah-ha.  Some progress at last.  Doing "yum search inconsolata"
revealed that I should be doing

     sudo yum install tex-inconsolata.noarch

*That* found a package and installed it.  It also appeared to install
tex-inconsolata-fedora-fonts-svn19721-1.noarch.  So I thought I
was good to go.

But now I get the error:

Zeeks!  What do I do about this?  I am afraid the error message is 
toadally opaque
to me.  Can someone advise me, please?  In words comprehensible to a bear of
very little brain! :-)
